I'm new to this board at least in a posting sense, but I'm in need of some advice,
I've been out of college now for 3 years and I have realized within the last several months my desire of becoming an attorney.
In August I started studying for the Lsat with hopes to take it in october. Well now its almost october and I'm started to feel like I didn't prepare efficiently and maybe even correctly. I started with a timed diagnostic Test 1 from the Lsat SuperPrep. I guess I did okay having no lsat prep, I scored a 145. I bought all of the powerscore bibles and read through each of them twice. I even took the weekend powerscore class which in my opinion was a waste of time because it was basically just to me just a instructor going over word for word what I had already read in the Powerscore bibles. I have taken sections of practice tests untimed but I have yet to take another full test timed. I started to take a full length test the other day but, but stopped half way through the first LR section because I found that all of the techniques I had "supposedly" mastered from the bibles all seemed to vanish as soon I started the timed test...With the test only in about a week, I'm thinking about waiting till December because that would give me 2 more months of taking untimed full tests and timed full tests. What do you guys think?
Whats the best way to get into taking timed practice tests? Taking them section at a time timed? or maybe taking tests completely untimed then taking them timed? I've only taken 1 up to this point and the test is a week away, any advice would be appreciated it. My goal is to hit mid-upper 160's to get into the schools I'm looking at.
